Pre-study Income Confirmation

Importance of the Income Confirmation Form (ICF)

The Income Confirmation Form is a critical part of the application process. This form is required for all students who apply prior to the start date of their semester in order to confirm the amount of their pre-study income.

The pre-study period is considered to be up to 17 weeks before the start of full-time studies for the current academic year. For example, if you finish high school in June and are starting post-secondary studies the following September, your pre-study period is the time between the day you finished high school and the start of classes in September—about 9 weeks. A pre-study period cannot be less than 4 weeks in duration. For example, a break between the end of the fall semester and the start of the winter semester is not a pre-study period unless the break is 4 weeks or more.

The Income Confirmation Form is required if:

  • your application is assessed prior to the start date of your semester. Your first semester funding will issue based on your estimated pre-study income. In order to receive funding for the second semester, you must confirm your pre-study income using the ICF by eight weeks after the start date of your first semester. Ensure you provide accurate information and not an approximate or estimated amount.
  • your application has not been assessed by the start date of your first semester. Your application will not be processed until you submit the ICF.
  • it is determined that you are ineligible for funding in your first semester, you must still submit the ICF in order to receive funding for your second semester, if you are eligible.

The Income Confirmation Form is not required if:

  • you apply after the start date of your semester

Failure to submit the ICF may result in your NL Student Grant converting to an interest-free NL Student Loan.

Deadline: This form must be submitted on or after the first day of classes for the current academic year and no later than 8 weeks after the start of your first semester. The ICF is required to ensure all future funds are disbursed.
